My "Shingle"

In preparation for my demo at the fair next week, I made this sign.  I used Sakura Jelly Roll Pens: white, copper, and glaze; and a silver Prismacolor for shading.  It's hard to see from the photo, but the glaze makes the black even blacker.  It looks like it is embossed and is shiny.  I used it on the highlights in the T, the Squiggly line in the L, and in the N.  Try it on your tangles.  It is a really neat effect.

Now I'm ready to hang out my shingle and get this business rolling.  If you are going to the Ohio State Fair next week, come visit me in the Family Arts and Crafts building.  I will be there from 10-2 on Aug 2-4.  Hope to see you there.

Close up to show the glaze pen.  

(For you non-Americans, "to hang out your shingle" means to start a business.)


  1. What glaze, or glaze pen do you use?

  2. Hi Barabara, I used Sakura. It looks just like the white Gelly Roll pen. I bought it at Archiver's and am having so much fun with it. I have some colored ATCs and love how it looks on them.


Your comments brighten my day. Thanks.
